‘Real Talk Women’ Founder, Tolu Odukoya-Ijogun Shares Six Golden Rule For A Successful Marriage
Tolu Odukoya -Ijogun, the first child of the late Pastor Bimbo Odukoya, has taken to her twitter platform to share six rules to sustain a marriage.
In one of the rules, the the mother of three talked about sex in marriage. According to the marketing professional who is also the founder of Real Talk Women, also known as Digital Revival, sex is an integral part of marriage as she advised married couples to have loads of it.
Sharing an admonition she received from her father, Tolu asserted that sex is a currency and if one does not spend it at home, they will eventually spend it somewhere else so couples should prioritize sex.
“When in a marriage have loads of sex. A couple not sleeping together is very dangerous. My Father once said “Sex is currency, if you don’t spend it at home you’ll spend it elsewhere” Mr & Mrs spend your currency at home! Truth: sex is like wine it gets better with time.”
She also advised couples to stop competing with each other and practice forgiveness. She added:
“When in a marriage, forgive. Unforgiveness is cancer, you need to nip it in the bud before it kills your love. If it’s difficult to let go, it simply means you don’t have closure…keep talking about it. My mother once said “Marriage is 2 forgivers living together.”
